Gatsby “paid a high price for living too long with a single dream” because the longer he held onto his unconditional love for Daisy the more distorted his perception of her became. The more Gatsby longed and was apart from Daisy the more idealized his perception became of her to the point that Daisy’s identity in Gatsby’s mind transcended who she is as a person: “it had gone beyond her, beyond everything.” Thus, Gatsby sets himself up for utter disappointment as he destines Daisy to “tumbled short of his dreams” because of the “colossal vitality of his illusion”of her. Nevertheless, Gatsby still attempts to preserve his illusion of her because by insisting that she claim she never loved Tom, however, this does not come to pass. Thus, Fitzgerald expresses why idealization is the most deleterious aspect of unconditional love because “it is invariably saddening to look through new eyes at things upon which you have expended your own power of adjustment.” Illusions can be broken so easily, and so the joy and importance they once exuded dissipates just as easily. Fitzgerald also conveys this belief through the existence of the green light.

Freedom in the Love Suicide at Amijima involves the double love triangles involving love in one story can mean loathe in another.
No matter how hard you hope, dream and work for something, fate decides and chooses your paths for you. Between the complicated relationship in “Crazy Sunday” Joel, Stella and Miles all experience insecurities and jealousy that make and break their relationships. Fitzgerald commonly uses the theme of the poor lonely boy falling hopelessly in love with a member of the upper class. He also incorporates corruption and the American dream commonly in his works. His most known work is The Great Gatsby.
Tom’s treats everyone badly and the cause of it is because he’s arrogant and aggressive. He even treats Myrtle badly whom he had a secret affair with. But the biggest conflict or rather said hatred Tom ever had, was when he got to know about Gatsby’s and Daisy’s secret relationship even though Tom had one himself. There’s even Gatsby’s and Daisy’s relationship, which blossoms throughout the novel till Gatsby realises his “love” for
From reading these past hundred pages of “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao,” it becomes clear that there is a connection between love and violence in the lives of the characters’. This is especially evident through the characters faulty actions of love. Whether it’s embracing too much love in a relationship or happening to fall in love the wrong person, the characters are assured a brutal scar on their hearts. These qualities of love and violence are what drives the characters to carry out their lives. Without these two qualities the characters excitement and motive of life slowly dies within
According to E-40, “Life is something you can’t borrow and give back; Here today and gone tomorrow…just like that” This dude must have played a lot of Siege, because every life is precious in this game. Human beings are fragile creatures, often dying after one or two well placed shots. This means every time you stick your neck out, there’s a chance you’ll be punished for it. This promotion of thoughtful, tactical gameplay is a welcome one. It also helps create Siege’s incredibly intense atmosphere and mood.
You see it all the time, so many people focus on things so hard and so much that they literally break themselves down. Once they do this the anxiety can kick in and their life can slowly start to just crumble. In the story this is exactly what happens to Paul. He is so focused on trying to make his mother happy that he literally drives himself insane. In the short story it says “There must be more money!
Everywhere I go, they hate me”. (pg. 35, line 9) He was so confused he was asking for forgiveness so he didn’t feel alone, so he felt loved. Everyone pushed him away, he created fear to the people because of his complexion and size. He didn’t have any feeling but anger and hopelessness so he made everyone else around him feel his pain.
She wants her readers to pay notice to the reality but uses disturbing words and phrases that would only make them stop reading. Mitford takes note that “not one in ten thousand has an idea of what actually takes place” (310) and there is so much more beneath the surface of things. Mitford also uses oxymorons such as, “he has done everything in his power to make the funeral a real pleasure for everybody” (314). It’s clear that a funeral isn’t a “pleasure”, it’s an incredibly sad experience (for most people) and it just goes to show the depth Mitford will go to portray her aggressive opinions. As Mitford continues to describe the shocking details about embalming she gets into a routine and systematically gives us disconcerting imagery every other paragraph, such as, a corpse “whose mouth had been sewn together” (312).
In this story and in our world we see people all the time teasing others, making them hate who they are on the inside and especially the outside. Even a person who didn't have any issues with themselve can be convinced to feel other wise. In the text we see Georgina battling this issue with her husband...someone who should love and accept her; “Still, whenever she dared to look into the mirror, there she beheld herself pale as a white rose and with the crimson birthmark stamped upon her cheek. Not even Aylmer now hated it so much as she.”(Hawthorne, 364). Just like the people in this world the characters in this story didn't understand that you shouldn't mess with what nature gave you;”“It was the fatal flaw of humanity which Nature, in one shape or another, stamps ineffaceable on all her productions, either to imply that they are temporary and finite, or that their perfection must be
